CRITIC REVIEWS

With the no-bullshit, spare-n-catchy Based on a T.R.U. Story, Chainz confirms himself as the quintessential 2012 rapper.

A.V. Club

2 Chainz is only truly comfortable with being a star, it seems, if there are other names on the marquee.

60
Hip Hop DX

With his debut album he's revealed himself as bare and buffoonish.

PopMatters

Based on a T.R.U. Story didn’t have much chance of living up to its hype, and for that I have to give it credit for coming so surprisingly close to most folks’ expectations.

45
Pitchfork

It's hard to avoid the feeling, particularly on his debut LP, that 2 Chainz is only able to fill those shoes by sheer force of will, rather than anything resembling artistic inspiration.

Consequence of Sound

The album is at its best when guests take the microphone and falls short nearly everywhere else.

Tiny Mix Tapes

Maybe we’re supposed to love this album because it’s the musical equivalent of a KFC Double-Down, filled with fancy co-stars and production, deep-fried, and devoid of any intellectual or nutritional value.
